Tom Tancredo Boycotts Univision Debate (Snore)

Tom Tancredo is insanely hateful towards Hispanics. He refered to Miami as a third world country. Tancredo is boycotting the Univision debate. He released a silly press release.

Tancredo released this statement: “It is the law that to become a naturalized citizen of this country you must have knowledge and understanding of English, including a basic ability to read, write, and speak the language,” Tancredo said. “So what may I ask are our presidential candidates doing participating in a Spanish speaking debate? Pandering comes to mind...America has been a melting pot of people from all over the world but it can not survive as a nation if our immigrants do not assimilate. A common language is essential to that goal. Bilingualism is a great asset for any individual but it has perilous consequences for a nation. As such, a Spanish debate has no place in a presidential campaign.”

Neither does hatemongering, Congressman. Check out Tancredo's Congressional website. It reads like a white supremist site. The photo of Tancredo with John Bolton is my favorite touch.

Personally, I think Tancredo is wussing out because he knows the Hispanic crowd will boo him off stage.

Update: Tancredo's latest campaign ad is out. To call the ad fearmongering would be kind. It's racist and factually bogus. In Tancredo's world, every illegal immigrant is a gang member.

Pam Spaulding has a good post about the Democratic presidential candidates discussing immigration like grown adults. Something Tancredo is unwilling to do.
